Tower repairs cloud MPT's picture for some

February 06, 2002|By David Folkenflik

Some viewers of Maryland Public Television may find it difficult to get a clear picture during daylight hours over the next few days.

From today through Friday, the state broadcaster will suspend its Annapolis-based signal to allow workers to assemble a new tower near an existing one, the network's officials said.

Subscribers to cable television should continue to receive the station on Channel 22, although at times there could be a weakened signal. But those in Central Maryland and the Washington suburbs who watch on regular broadcast television, or those who have satellite television, are likely to have their reception significantly disrupted.

The new tower is for both analog and digital signals. Some viewers still may be able to watch MPT programming on signals transmitted by towers in Frederick, Owings Mills or Salisbury.
